John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd. “Our Honibe™ - Honey Lozenges™ are a
100% pure dried honey lozenge with no sugar added. We are excited to offer consumers our
one of a kind all natural cough drop to sooth sore throats and provide cough relief.“
The Honibe™ brand has garnered international attention in recent months for the product the
Honey Drop™. The Honey Drop™ was the first product launched under the Honibe™ brand and
is an individual serving (one teaspoon / 5 g.) of 100% pure dried honey without any additives. It
is ideal for sweetening tea or coffee. Simply drop into a hot beverage and stir. You have all of
the natural honey flavour without the usual honey mess. Most recently, the Honey Drop™ won
two SIAL D’or 2010 Awards at the world’s largest food tradeshow in Paris, France and will now
be one of nine finalists competing for best new food product in the world this October.
